Leake holding up well after two innings
As ASU coach Pat Murphy gets second-guessed about his decision to start Mike Leake on two days' rest after Leake threw 77 pitches Tuesday night, let's follow along by charting his pitch count:
-- First inning: 16 pitches (10 strikes)
-- Second inning: 13 pitches (11 strikes)
-- Total pitches: 29 (21 strikes)
I wonder what the Cincinnati Reds think about Murphy's decision after the MLB club selected Leake in the first round (eighth overall) of last week's draft.
